and sunshine returns by mid week but also late week weech got a little bit of unsettled weather to talk about as well. in the meantime tonight we're talking clouds and all this moisture starting to move its way up the seaboard, not seeing a lot right now because it hasn't quite reached far enough, but charlottesville is seeing a little bit of it. it will start to get widespread once we get to the overnight hours here. as i said it will stick around at least until the early part of your monday. we're also talking fog with it. so visibility will certainly be reduced especially overnight and into the first part of your monday if you are heading any way. a lot of you have a holiday tomorrow so there might not be too much traffic on the roads as a result of that. this low pressure system moving out, what's going to happen a ridge of high pressure moves in and between those two we're going to start to see some winds starting to pick up. already the winds are starting to get ai
they're going to be very gusty tomorrow. 30 mile per hour wind gusts or more. but that ridge of high pressure will be responsible for getting that moisture out of the way and setting us up. it's going to be fairly nice monday and tuesday we'll see the same situation with the cooler air. giving you a little bit of timing, this is kind of advanced a little bit, but here's 3:00, 4:00 in the morning we're going to see pockets of heavier rainfall. but it's not a heavy, steady rain. it fills in on its own and by the morning hours we're left with some clouds, and by the afternoon it's out of the picture as that ridge of high pressure starts to build in. our temperatures today were into the 50s. tomorrow we're going to be a lot warmer. at least
you're going to have it feel actually a little cooler than it is in terms of air temperatures. right now the temperatures are into the low 50s and upper 40s everywhere and we're going to see later this week a warm-up. we're going to end up getting into the 70s later in the week but we also have a chance of seeing some thunderstorms. tomorrow we're talking a high of 68 degrees but once again showers in the morning, keep the umbrella handy, and by the afternoon you can toss it aside and just enjoy the drier conditions. and then we're going to warm up to the 70s. as i said later in the week but we also have a chance of seeing some thunderstorms. it's spring so we kind of have things happening all over the place. we get a nice couple dry days in between those. >> i wonder how the rain will affect the cherry blossoms. >> they do better when it's cool
starting to warm up a little bit. i'm worried about the winds. >> yeah, that's true. >> they were falling all over the place. >> it's going to be gusty tomorrow. so fingers crossed. >> thank you, gwen. if you can't make it down to the tidal basin, this may be the second-best cherry blossom display. the kenwood area boasts more than 3,400 cherry trees. it has become a huge tourist attraction. >> of course the arrival of spring also means the arrival of the dreaded allergies for many people. the asthma and allergy foundation has released their annual list of the 100 most challenges place to live with allergies this time of year. number one on the list jackson, mississippi followed by memphis tennessee. the good news for the district dc came in at 82nd on the list. >> jackson, mississippi. >> i wonder what they have. >> we
